RDA Hackathon on maDMPs

Dear all,
We would like to invite you to the hackathon on machine-actionable Data Management Plans (maDMPs).
The hackathon is open for everyone. As well as software developers we are looking for anyone with an interest in data - no technical knowledge is necessary - you might help with ideas generation, user testing, documentation etc.
The goal is to build integrations and test the common standard for maDMPs that is an official output of the RDA DMP Common Standards WG.
